Indiana University is constructing a new Indiana University School of Medicine Medical Education Building on its Bloomington campus.
The 326,200-square-foot facility will have a three-story base structure and an eight-story tower on the southern quarter of the building, the university says in a news release.
The eight-story office and research tower will be situated above the south end of the academic base structure with three floors of faculty offices and three floors of shell space planned for flexible, modular biomedical research, research support and offices.
The base structure, which will focus primarily on medical education, will consist of support spaces and shell space for a future research vivarium, as well as academic learning spaces featuring 12 small learning communities, classrooms and a medical library, all surrounding a central gathering space.
Browning Day and Perkins & Will are the architects.
